Arsenal on the verge of signing long term La Liga target
Reports from Spain are claiming that Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan, is set for a switch to the Premier League with Arsenal. The Turkish midfielder has failed to nail down a starting spot in the Barca first team since joining them in 2015.
This lack of opportunities can be put down to the performances of Busquets, Rakitic, Gomes, and Iniesta. They have been in fine form so far, and the coach seems to prefer them in his attacking midfield.
Despite his limited opportunities, Turan has scored 12 goals and provide 4 assists this season.
Arsenal wanted to sign him before he moved to Barcelona two years ago, but are confident that they can land their man now. The Gunners expect at least one of Ozil or Sanchez to leave this summer, and they believe Turan can comfortably fill in for the player that moves.
The Gunners may not qualify for the Champions League next season, but it is believed that is not a big problem for Turan who has bought a house in London.
The Gunners would make a bid in the region of £25 Million for him in the coming days.
